Are Princess Beatrice and her fiancé Edo Mapelli Mozzi moving into the house Prince Harry and Meghan Markle once lived in? Yes, according to one tabloid article this week. Gossip Cop can help explain what’s going on.
According to the latest issue of New Idea, Princess Beatrice and her husband-to-be, Mapelli Mozzi, are considering moving into Prince Harry and Markle’s England residence, Frogmore Cottage. The tabloid claims that Mapelli Mozzi “prompted speculation” that he was leaving current residence when he posted apartment photos to his Instagram account with the caption, “hard to say goodbye to this.” The couple, the outlet says, have agreed that Frogmore would be the “perfect” new home to move to, though they don’t actually cite any sources on that claim.
The tabloid further contends that Princess Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi are looking to take over the Sussexes jobs. Phil Dampier, a longtime journalist of the royal family, tells the tabloid that Princess Beatrice and her sister Princess Eugenie would “gladly step up and do some royal jobs if they were allowed” in the absence of Prince Harry and his wife. Neither princess is considered a “full-time royal,” but both would be interested in getting the promotion, the tabloid says.
It’s entirely possible that the Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie could step to fill the role Prince Harry left vacant. But as for the rest of the story, Gossip Cop can set the record straight there. It’s false.
Whether or not Princess Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi move to a new house at some point in the future, this story is bogus. Mapelli Mozzi made that post on Instagram because he’s a property developer who frequently posts about his company, Banda Property. He wasn’t saying goodbye to a residence he’s moving out of, he was just promoting his company by displaying an apartment Banda had recently renovated and sold.
Furthermore, although Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not currently residing in the UK, it’s clear they intend to keep Frogmore Cottage for their own use. Just a couple days ago it was reported that the couple has started paying rent on the cottage, plus extra to pay off renovations that the property had undergone while they were living there, and which were originally paid for with taxpayer money. They agreed to pay back the costs when they stepped down as senior royals. Clearly, Frogmore Cottage is not open for a new permanent resident.
Like every other tabloid out there, New Idea frequently uses the royal family as fodder for phony gossip. Just last week, Gossip Cop busted the Australian tabloid for falsely claiming that Prince William and Kate Middleton were expecting their fourth child. Last month, we shot down the outlet’s theory that Prince Harry was planning on ditching Markle and returning to the UK without her or their son, Archie. This tabloid would obviously rather make up lies about the royals than actually report the truth.
Why Nicole Avant Made Doc About Her Father – Variety
When Nicole Avant was growing up in Beverly Hills in the 1970s and ’80s, her father, Clarence Avant, was one of the most connected and successful African American power brokers in the music industry. He launched record labels, owned radio stations and became a key figure in politics and the civil rights movement.
The Avant home was always buzzing with a stream of Hollywood and Washington insiders coming and going. “I knew that he was very powerful because the phone rang constantly and I always heard him fixing something or giving advice,” says Nicole, who made her producing debut with Netflix’s “The Black Godfather,” a documentary about her father. “And then I did see him on ‘Soul Train’ one day, and he was giving an interview with Don Cornelius. …That’s when I thought, ‘Oh, he must be a big deal because he’s on television.’”
That point is driven home by the documentary, which features interviews with Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jesse Jackson, David Geffen, Jamie Foxx, Sean “Diddy” Combs and the late Bill Withers, whom Avant signed to his Sussex Records while the singer was still working as an aircraft assembler.
Nicole Avant, who is married to Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos, says she had plans to shop the doc around before her husband snapped it up for the streamer. “I actually had this idea in my head since I was a little girl. I really did,” Avant, who served as Obama’s ambassador to the Bahamas, says on this week’s episode of the Variety and iHeart podcast “The Big Ticket.” “I had told Ted, even when I was dating him, there’s this idea I have for this film, and I said to him, ‘I’m going to take it to HBO.’ Once I started getting the interviews and everyone started confirming, Ted said, ‘Do you really have all these people saying yes?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, for sure.’ He said, ‘Let me take a look at it again.’ And then at that point, Ted is a part of the family, and he saw a solid film, and he saw an important film, and he actually wanted to tell the story just as much or even more than I did.”
What do you want people to know about your dad?
I really wanted people to take away that it’s important to have a strong sense of self. It’s important to keep moving forward. It’s important to pay back. It’s important to move the needle. Also, it’s very important to take risks in life. Sometimes you’re going to fail. Sometimes people are going to say no. So what? It’s a part of life. You keep going. You pick yourself back up again.
What did you learn about your dad while making the documentary that you didn’t know already?
I took it for granted how hard his childhood was and how abusive it was — having a stepfather, really beating up my grandmother in front of him and in front of the other children. My dad didn’t really have a childhood, and he took care of seven kids because everyone was working and they were so poor.
How hard was it to hear those stories?
Very hard for me. And it made a lot of sense when everything did fall down for him and everything blew up at one time and we lost everything. I think everything triggered to his childhood again of not having things he didn’t have or anybody to really rely on.
Tell me about a time in which someone really big turned up at the house and you were like, ‘What is this person doing here?’”
The one time I was very star-struck was when Whitney Houston showed up one day and I had just been listening to the “Greatest Love of All.” I’d sing it in the car like I was Whitney Houston. I was floored; I stood at the front door and I thought, “Oh, my God, this is a real celebrity. This is a big deal.”
If you were to make a scripted narrative about your dad, who would play him?
Forest Whitaker could play him because he knows him and he could “get” him actually.

Even Prince William Has To Deal With This Classic Family Dinner Challenge
There’s no question about it: lockdown has changed our lives and transformed the way we work. And that goes for royals, too. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have adapted, taking their royal duties online, via a number of zoom calls. But not everything has changed… On his latest call, Prince William revealed that even he has to deal with this classic family dinner challenge.
Speaking to representatives of the PEEK Project, a Glasgow-based charity, on May 20, the Duke of Cambridge said the success of his family meal depend very much on “what’s on the table”. Joking with community chef Charlie Farrally, Prince William agreed that dinner time can be very challenging: “If parents put something on that children love, dinner time goes very well,” he said. “But if you put something on the table they don’t want to do, that’s another ball game.”
PEEK Project, Possibilities for Each and Every Kid, have been working throughout COVID-19 to provide balanced, and hot meals for families in need. The Duke of Cambridge praised them for their work and pointed out the immense pressure that parents are under as well.
The PEEK project has been supported in it’s work throughout the pandemic by the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal. Were it not for lockdown, the Duke of Cambridge would have been in Scotland this week to meet representatives at the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. Obviously, this couldn’t go ahead face-to-face, but he still spoke to the chefs, volunteers, and the CEO via a video call. “I hope when I find myself up in Glasgow in the near future I can come and see you guys in person and congratulate you,” he added.
Ozark’s Esai Morales to Replace Nicholas Hoult As ‘Mission: Impossible’ Villain – Find Out Why
Esai Morales, known for his work in Ozark and How to Get Away with Murder, is joining the cast of Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8, director Christopher McQuarrie revealed on his Instagram on Thursday (May 21).
The reason why Nicholas is being replaced? The Coronavirus pandemic has delayed production of tons of movies and television shows across the globe. As a result, the “delay put Hoult in conflict with another commitment.”
The film currently has a release date of July 23, 2021, but that could change as many films have had to alter release dates due to the global health crisis.
If you missed it, Nicholas just made a super rare comment about his two-year-old son.
